John Legend: “All of Me” Bulldog Wedding Video

John Legend made this awesome music video for “All of Me” featuring his two dogs; a bulldog and french bulldog named Putty & Pippa.

So, why did John put his bulldogs in a wedding dress and tuxedo? Don’t worry, he didn’t go insane. (Although he does admit to being “out of his mind” in the song.

Actually, he and his wife, Chrissy Teigen made this video for charity. Watch the video, and you can enter a contest for the chance to have John Legend sing at your own wedding or event!

Never knew he and his wife were so funny! (nice comedic timing, too) Anyway, the charity, Omaze, is raising funds to build a new high school auditorium in John’s hometown of Springfield, Ohio.

It doesn’t matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
’cause you were born this way, baby”
– Lady Gaga, Born This Way

lady_gaga_french_bulldog_asiaNot sure if Lady Gaga was inspired by her female French Bulldog puppy, Asia, when she wrote that song, but I guess it’s possible.

Anyway, she describes her intense love for the dog as “an illness,” so I guess you could say she’s a “dog person.”

In case you aren’t tired of celebrity selfies yet, here’s one that she took of herself and Asia, together with her boyfriend, Taylor Kinney: (posted on Instagram)

Not sure what Asia is thinking in that photo, but I guess dog’s don’t really know what “normal” is anyway.

If you’ve seen the Poker Face video, you might have thought that Lady Gaga preferred big dogs, but apparently not. Well, her fans are eating up recent videos of the puppy, as the one showing Asia playing with the starfish got over 120k likes!

Mila Kunis and Dog Shorty

Mila & her dog, Shorty

Mila Kunis recently described herself as “not a big attention-seeking person,” wanting “the simple things in life,” often preferring time at home with her two dogs, named Shorty (a corgi, beagle, chihuahua mix) and Audrey (an 8 year old French Bulldog).

Mila recently said, “Shorty’s the best dog in the world but has this thing with lizards now. He thinks they’re fun. He’s like, ‘Here mom, look at this’ and spits half a dead lizard at my feet. It’s gross and he’s all, ‘Yay, look what I did’.

Nice. Hopefully with all the recent attention the “Friends With Benefits” star is getting, she still has time for those nights at home with the dogs!
